Open House London is the capital's largest annual festival of architecture and design, promoting public awareness and appreciation of the capital's urban fabric. Taking place between 16 – 17 September 2017, the event opens up London's splendid buildings to the general public and helps the wider community to become more knowledgeable and engage with London’s spaces.
As part of Open House London 2017, Ramboll’s Jeremy Foster and architect Keith Cowell, A&Q Partnership, will be welcoming visitors to Woolwich Arsenal’s historic clock tower and imparting knowledge on the restoration of the 19th century clock tower.
The residential and commercial redevelopment of the Royal Woolwich Arsenal site, on the south bank of London’s River Thames, features a 19th century clock tower that suffered near total destruction and was in a state of serious disrepair. Combining 3D modelling and knowledge of traditional construction techniques, our structural and conservation engineers were able to salvage and reuse more than 85% of the clock tower’s original materials, providing a sensitive and cost-effective solution for its reinstatement.
The Woolwich Arsenal Clock Tower talks take place regularly on Saturday 16th September and Sunday 17th September between 2pm – 5:45pm. Find out more information about the Woolwich Arsenal Clock Tower open house talks and tours including directions.
